Christmas Wallhanging

Last years Christmas Party, at the local quilt shop, we were all given material to make a 12" block. I won 3 blocks and had the chance to pick my own, the center block.  Just finished machine quilting and added the binding.  Some is free motion and some straight stitched. I recently purchased a Janome 6300 and I like most of the features. The one I am having a hard time is the tension. Seems like every time I sew I have to adjust the foot control and tension.  Hope to have this under control soon as it is a real pain.

Rug Mug and Snowflakes

Rug Mug for your coffee or tea cup. The tatted cupcake is a pattern from Nancy Tracy and the tea pot is from the book "Tea is for Tatting" by   Martha Ess.

Here is a  Tatted Wreath added to the back of this medalion.
(Pattern .. Christmas Berry Wreath by LaRae Mikulecky)
 I added a few more stitches to each Chain Stitch to make it work.  The snow flake is tatted with 2 different threads of Lizbeth 20 white and Sulky metalic gold.
